The Craziest Website of Them All

This is a rich, rich category with many worthy nominees. There are Holocaust deniers, space alien abductees, Raelians, and Michael Jackson. No one has read all the crazy websites, and I could be convinced that there are even nuttier ones out there that I have not met yet. But my nominee can certainly hold its own on a level playing field. Especially since they only believe in level playing fields, since they think the earth is flat. That gem, though, is only the beginning of the elaborate theory propounded -- at great length, and in all sincerity -- by

The non-moving Earth

& anti-evolution web page of

The Fair Education Foundation, Inc.

I cannot reproduce the whole effect, since the webpage changes fonts, font sizes, and colors within almost every line.

The summary of their position is this:

"The Earth is not rotating...nor is it going around the sun.
The universe is not one ten trillionth the size we are told.
Today’s cosmology fulfills an anti-Bible religious plan disguised as "science".
The whole scheme from Copernicanism to Big Bangism is a factless lie.
Those lies have planted the Truth-killing virus of evolutionism
in every aspect of man’s "knowledge" about the Universe, the Earth, and Himself."

I have a hard time imagining the lives of people who write such a web site. On the one hand, how do they exist in a world where television news, beamed by satellite, shows them the other side of the round, rotating world? Do they take a flu shot each year? Do they travel by airplane?

Most Americans' lives depend on systems that are designed with a round, rotating earth as a basic assumption. If these folks fully understood that, they would have to either drop out of modern life almost entirely.

Thanks (I think) for sharing this.

My personal vote. Should you have 10 extra minutes someday...don't waste it trying to understand this.

Yep, that is seriously crazy. I love the claim that his new book is the #2 best seller of all time because Jesus wrote a review of it, which set off a buying spree among the angels.
